Re: Did You Go to the School You Support?

another dooley era spider here minus tarrant's last season. an era of bands like Dave Matthews (overrated imo but blasphemous thing to say in Richmond) and Hootie & Blowfish right b4 they got national playing regularly in the case of Dave at the epic since deceased Floodzone. agree it is a bit remarkable there are so many of us from Doooley era. the lowlight/highlight was the "you can't see Dick" Papparo no call on Mike Hodges in CAA tourney. Hodges was up in AC for A10 tourney this year btw. while I went to most games in college I think my fandom came on strong during beilein's great first season in 98 when I followed closely (which basically meant following scores on bottom line & going to richmond times dispatch online for most part since it was pre-message boards until I randomly stumbled upon rivals maybe a year later?). That year we won CAA tourney and beat South Carolina in 1st rd a game I attended. The fanaticism seems to only have incrementally increased every year since.

Re: Did You Go to the School You Support?

Yes & No

3rd generation Billikens fan. Attended my first game at 2 months of age. My father readily would plan vacations and weekend trips around Billiken road games as a child. From the age of 5 till I was 18 I missed only 2 home games. Have seen the Billikens call 5 different venues home & seen them play in 4 different conferences. Decided to go the state college route but never finished. Now at 32 taking online classes at SLU.

Re: Did You Go to the School You Support?

I graduated from X in the late '70's, towards the end of what we call the dark ages of basketball. Took a lot to follow those teams, yet we had a ball. Considered both UD and SLU among other schools outside the A10 (of course X wasn't in any conference back then).

Re: Did You Go to the School You Support?

yes. I went to GW.

I'm actually surprised how many here didn't go to the school they root for. I expect that at big name BCS schools, but I'm impressed about fans who would root for an A--10 team where they didn't go.

I started out at Lasalle.
Took the trolley to 20th and Olney.
Gola won championships.
I voted for Ike.
Then I met a guy named Steve.
Transferred to St Joe.

Re: Did You Go to the School You Support?

Earlier in this thread, I said that I support Xavier even though I went to college and grad school in New England (where I grew up) because I am on the faculty at Xavier, and have been for nearly thirty years. I also taught Snipe back when he was a pup.

I hope that's something you never mentioned to your tenure committee.

SNAP.

Well done. Then I considered that Xm47 has been at it for 30 years, which means it was most likely his good fortune to nail tenure before the Snipemeister came along.

How 'bout that! dash, we share at Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co. heritage.

I'd agree with you Wolf, but my wife would beg to differ. But, I'd have to rate the decision to attend Bonas the second best decision of my life. Followed my cousin to Bonas. So much more than academics. Proud member of the "cult".

I've got Arthur Young, Ernst & Whinney and Ersnt & Young in my distant past, on the consulting side. Missed Ernst & Ernst by a year.
